Hundreds of Georgia School Children to Receive Free Eye Exams and Glasses
Date:3/22/2010

dicate that 80 percent of learning in children occurs visually; yet 86 percent of children do not receive a vision exam during these formative years.  

"This ongoing collaborative effort to bring the Vision Van back again this year to the greater Atlanta area continues to make a meaningful difference in the lives of children who might not otherwise have had their vision needs met," says Monye Connolly, president, BCBSGa.  "Our hope is that this service will provide these children with improved self-esteem and a better opportunity to live life to the fullest."  

"OneSight provides important opportunities through clear vision that enable children to succeed in school and ultimately, in life," said Jane Walters, OneSight captain. "We have seen many cases where a pair of glasses has made the difference in helping a child accomplish greater scholastic success or simply see clearly for the first time. Watching a child's face light up as the world comes into focus is something I will never forget."

"An eye exam is one of the best forms of preventative medicine today. Good vision health is connected to overall health and well-being. Supporting OneSight's regional clinic helps these children to more clearly experience the world around
